What is your overall opinion of this school?

EIU does an excellent job keeping me informed of academic deadlines, such as registering for classes and available campus activities. EIU staff seem to really care and work hard to ensure their students are successful at college. The campus vibe is positive everywhere you go.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Eastern Illinois University is a great college depend (depending on what you are looking for). Eastern is the second cheapest state school in Illinois. This means less student loans! It is also a very small town, which means you are more likely to have better networking opportunities as well as more personal/social connections. I have met some of my closest friends at this college. I have also gained professional relationships with professors that provide with me letter of recommendations for the future, and understanding/empathy, and greater resources for learning. I have utilized office hours as well as confided in my professors in terms of what is best for my future. At a larger school, this is impossible. What is great about Eastern is that the smaller classroom size/community will benefit your future in the long run. Some of Eastern's programs are also outstanding. When I chose my major, I knew Eastern had one of the best programs for it in the state (and surrounding states). I have gained a ton of clinical experience and knowledge that will benefit me throughout my education and career journeys. Aside from this, the rest of the campus is pretty average. However, I would highly recommend. It is a very safe, homey environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Illinois University offers an array of courses, and doesn't seem to lean too heavily into any political side. Unless you manage to develop a good friend group or bring a car to campus there won't be too much for you to do as this school is located in a small town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Illinois University feels like home when you step on campus. It's a welcoming vibe that everyone that visits love. Just from visiting the academics seem like the teachers actually puts their all in everything they do and I think it's a wonderful thing to do. If a teacher loves what they're doing, then the students will enjoy being in class and that's exactly what EIU does. Eastern Illinois University is the place to go!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of EIU, is honestly I have no bad things to say about it, I really love the school and the dynamic fo how it is. Like when you go to EIU, there’s always this sense if I’m at home, and because it’s sort of a small campus, you get to know people very quickly

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Eastern Illinois University is a very diverse campus. It helps me become a better adult and aware of my surroundings from others that are different from me. The school provides an excellent class environment that allows me to connect with my professor’s and fellow scholars. Eastern is the cheapest University to attend in Illinois.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern is a very great school for people that need space and need to study. I love the environment and all the people on and off campus. I would definitely recommend. If you need help there are so many outlets and just students in general that are so into their studies they would help and eve give strategies on better ways to study. Numerous study groups and other activities are also available to all the students that need it and everyone event I attended was very organized and very fun to watch.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Needs improvement. The food could be much better, it's really disgusting. The unity of the campus could be much better but instead everything is so segregated. The dorms are disgusting, you're paying thousands of dollars for a half of a shoe box. It needs improvement with better professors as well, I've experienced some really harsh and noncaring professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Eastern Illinois University is an interesting school. Lots of life around the campus on the weekend. Obviously stressed students constantly walking around campus. most of the professors care more about a pay check or having tenure than actually teaching students or caring about their classes. But, they have excellent arts programs, hiking trails, activities, and variety on on campus food. There's events and activities going on almost everyday! and lastly, EIU has a fantastic Library with new apple computers. All of the students bleed blue at EIU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Eastern, as it feels like a home away from home truly. The classes are evenly sized and give a better connection to the professors. The professors are also willing to give the extra time to make sure you are on track and understand the material fully. Hands down one of the best choices I have ever made.
